I have been a faculty member in the Department of Educational Leadership and Research Methods at FAU since 2000. My primary areas of interest are socio-cultural and historical factors influencing school leadership, leadership pedagogies, internationalizing educational leadership, and theorizing on the possible relationships between school leaders and social justice. Among my most recent articles are the following:

Prior to coming to FAU (I have earned my Ed.D. from Florida International University), I was on the school leadership faculty at the University of New Orleans from 1990-2000. Beginning in the historic year of 1968, my educational leadership journey has taken me from New York City, Gurabo, Puerto Rico, Chapel Hill, NC, Guatemala City, Washington, D.C., San Francisco, Miami, New Orleans, to Boca Raton. While at FAU, I have worked on projects in Quito, Ecuador, New Orleans, LA, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, Glasgow/Stirling/Edinburgh, Scotland and Griffith University in Brisbane, Australia. The majority of my service to the field has come through my work with academic journals, serving on the editorial boards for Urban Education, Educational Administration Quarterly, Journal of School Leadership, The Professional Educator, The Scholar-Practitioner Quarterly and most recently the Journal of Research on Leadership Education and the Journal of Cases in Educational Leadership. I am currently the Associate Editor for the International Journal of Leadership in Education. Working with Sense Publishers, Tony Townsend and I wrote, edited and published three books, Leadership for Learning, MacBeath and Cheng, Radicalizing Educational Leadership, Bogotch, Beachum, Blount, Brooks, and English, and The Elusive What and the Problematic How, Townsend and Bogotch. I also served as a regional editor for the International Handbook of Leadership for Learning edited by Townsend and MacBeath (2011). In 2014, I completed editing a new International Handbook with Carolyn Shields on Social (In)Justice and Educational Leadership. My latest project is another International Handbook collaboration with Professor Duncan Waite for Wiley-Blackwell with a projected publication date of 2017.
